Council to discuss £98m cuts

First published in News

FUTURE cuts of as much as £98m will be debated today at a full county council meeting.

As reported, jobs and public services in Hampshire will face a fresh round of cutbacks between 2016 and 2018.

It follows five years of austerity amid ever shrinking Government funding that has led to the county council clawing back £250,000 over five years.

Bosses blame rocketing child and adult social care costs.

Where the axe will fall has not been revealed, but departments are being warned that it could mean reducing budgets by an unprecedented 14 per cent.

But unions say that as well as threatening hundreds of council jobs, there is a risk to public services.
